sooo... i don't generally recon clothing, because i'm not very good at it, but i *wish* i were!  Cheesy  every once in a while i get the recon bug and dig through my closet for clothes to remake.

anyway, i had an old wool sweater from goodwill that was too small, so i felted it in the washing machine, cut the sleeves off to be used for legwarmers, and was left with a sort of sweater-vest.

i cut it down the middle and added a button, but i'm not sure if it's cute or... not.  Cheesy  honest opinions greatly appreciated!!

it rocks! It looks really well done and not at all reconned, which is how i think recons should look! The only thing i think i would've tried or done differently is gone more sleeveless, almost like a mans suit vest, but it really looks good just like that!
